Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1878
solferino, anadromous, zeroth, smithereens
Joseph’s campaign to renumber the days of the month to start with the zeroth (the only way that made sense to his programmer’s brain) had him swimming against the current of mainstream thought processes like some anadromous parent-to-be looking for a place to spawn; the result of this futile effort always seemed to be the appearance of a throbbing, solferino-colored vein on his temple followed soon thereafter by his threatening to blow the world to smithereens.
