Hypothesis: he's an idiot.

Oh man, "apothecary" and (German) "Apotheke" use the same apo- as "aposematism".
'from Ancient Greek ἀποθήκη (apothḗkē, “a repository, storehouse”), from ἀπό (apó, “away”) + τίθημι (títhēmi, “to put”) literally "a place where things are put away"'

"Apotheca" was borrowed with the "storehouse" meaning into Latin, drifted to a meaning of "shop", and gave rise to many words including "boutique", "bodega", and, in German, "Apotheke" (pharmacy).
