On one of their adventures, Erbert and Gerbert traveled back in time to ancient Greece and landed on board an Athenian ship, smack-dab in the middle of the Battle of Salamis in 480 B.C. In the chaos of the fight, the boys fell overboard and Erbert ended up marooned on the beach with no sign of Gerbert. Thinking he was the enemy, an armada of archers began shooting arrows at the unarmed Erbert. Just when he thought he was Swiss cheese, a giant crab came out of the sea and Erbert jumped aboard. Now, since most crabs only move sideways, the archers had a tough time shooting at the two, and the angry arrows fell harmlessly on the beach. Gerbert, who safely observed the whole affair from behind a rock, told Erbert how awesome it was to watch the crab “geeting to the left and geeting to the right.” The name stuck and thereafter the boys called their crab friend The Geeter.
