APOTHECARY

Below the term “APOTHECARY” from the Devil’s Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce.

I placed this term (and I am still working on placing each and every of the close to 1000 terms of the Devils Dictionary) on a separate page that you can easily share in your social networks.

But this is only on part of the story: Feel free to comment on the terms, to shed lights about persons mentioned, to write your own definition – now that more 100 years have gone by since the publishing of the Devil’s Dictionary. If you have images that could contribute to this common adventure – please get in contact with me via email – dictionarynet123@gmail.com.

    APOTHECARY, n. The physician’s accomplice, undertaker’s benefactor and grave worm’s provider.

    When Jove sent blessings to all men that are,
    And Mercury conveyed them in a jar,
    That friend of tricksters introduced by stealth
    Disease for the apothecary’s health,
    Whose gratitude impelled him to proclaim:
    "My deadliest drug shall bear my patron’s name!"

    G.J.
