>>> import string
>>> a = string.Formatter()
>>> a.format("{}","test")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#2>", line 1, in <module>
    a.format("{}","hello")

    return self.vformat(format_string, args, kwargs)

    result = self._vformat(format_string, args, kwargs, used_args, 2)
