Django — ModelAdmin object has no attribute ‘__name__’

Got this delicious error today.

AttributeError: ‘ReturnAdmin’ object has no attribute ‘__name__’

Turns out that you can’t use the ForeignKey traversing syntax used everywhere in Django for ModelAdmin list_display

list_display = ('my_fk__blah',)

Will throw this mysterious error.
