Hi everybody!

I need to write a parametrized mysql query with python using MySQLdb

I did this successfully:

cursor.execute("SELECT * FROM foo WHERE bar = %s AND baz = %s", (param1, param2))

The problem comes when I want to do a LIKE with two parameters:

cursor.execute("SELECT * FROM foo WHERE bar like '%%s%' AND baz like '%%s%'", (param1, param2))

I get an error:

    query = query % db.literal(args)
ValueError: unsupported format character ''' (0x27) at index 47


How can I write this correctly?
