Polish Sentence With The Letter S Lots Of Times

Can anyone give me a sentence in Polish that uses the letter S (in its original S sound, not Ś or SZ).
Perhaps the sort of thing a speech therapist might employ in dealing with someone's lisp.
Tongue twisters not only welcomed, but positively encouraged.
Nonsense not a problem.

Hmmm. I couldn't really find what I was after there.
Sassafras suspense science sinks sissy's cistern soap system.
That's full of the sound I'm after, but alas! Wrong language.

satysfakcja

That word's got the most s in it from that list, and there are only 2! edit: 3 when including the c.
Sassafras, being the internationally recognised name of a tree, must somehow be useable in Polish, so it's still in pole position.

What I need is a sentence with lots of ssssss in Polish.
Then I get a certain someone to read it, followed by a similar sentence in English.

This chap only has a lisp in English and I'm not sure why. Luckily he has a sense of humour in both.

Listonosz sprawił sobie stary samochód syrenke i popisuje sie laską z satysfakcją.

Thanks.
I don't entirely understand it. Is that to be expected?

I only think I understand it. "laska" throws me off. It's slang for chick/girl. Regular meaning cane or walking stick

as for the letter s:
plenty of double:

saksy
saksauł
salceson
starosta
samoobsługa
skurwysyn
samoster
sasanka
satanista
ssać
sedes
stos

A few tripple:

solipsystyczny (solipsysta)
saksofonista
starosłowiański
skurwysyństwo
stanisławowski
(hetero/home) seksualista

showing off to the chicks

popisuje sie laską z satysfakcją

This is where the problem is. You probably meant "laskom" which is plural (not laską), but the correct form is : "popisuje sie przed laskami".

"Popisuje sie laską" means that the chick (singular) the object of his pride.

Thats proves how difficult Polish language is, upps I did it again. But that is common that even Polish people make mistakes....

No, I was in Poland when the Syrenka was popular. A really marvelous little car and very strong indeed.

well, if you need words with many phonetical "s" don't forget the "z" in the voiceless positions, this way you'll get more options (like in the example below, don't ask about the sense of thissentence).

Bezsensowne spostrzeżenia saksofonistki Stanisławy Rozkwitalskiej, mistycystki, o subsydiach dla starostw.
