"Ο Καλός, ο Κακός και ο Άσχημος (Ιταλικά: Il buono, il brutto e il cattivo)" (from Wikipedia)

In the original Italian, it was: "The Good (Clint Eastwood), the Ugly (Eli Wallach), and the Bad" (Lee Van Cleef).

Huh, so this is where Esperanto's word "kaj" (also meaning "and") comes from. Cool.

I came here to say this! I'd wondered about that one, and apparently Zamenhof knew Greek.

Yes, Dr. Zamenhof knew greek, latin, and a lot of languages...

The audio sounds strange to me. I can't hear "and"

Slow the audio down, it's there.

Bit of a tongue twister there.
