How can I have one element list or tuple?

The following example returns a string type, but I need a tuple...
>>var = ("Hello")
print type(var)
<type 'str'>

I need that for a method parameter.
Thx

It is the comma, not the brackets, that create tuples. The brackets are
recommended for clarity, but aren't always required (except for grouping).
>>1, 2, 3
(1, 2, 3)

The only exception is the special case of an empty tuple, which you
create with an empty pair of brackets:
>>()
So for a one-element tuple:
>>"Parrot",
('Parrot',)
