Like when you've had a few drinks and you've lost all your vowels and you want to say "Fish n chips..."

It is. 'Sz' and 'cz''are voiceless, so 'w' becomes voiceless, too. In most languages you have processes like that, only English speakers make themselves more problems and do not devoice sounds.

something about beetles and reeds, basically they're both tongue twisters so they probably won't make much sense in English either

"chrzaszcz" is translated into English as "maybug" or "cockchafer"
I can say it though I am Ukrainian, but this is probably one of the most difficult tongue-twisters ever.

I don't know of a language which has THE most difficult tongue-twister. Polish's certainly up there though. English: "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.." doesn't exactly just roll off my tongue either (an English native speaker) any more than German: "Fischers Fritze fischt frische Fische.." etc. etc.., even if I grew up nearly bilingual in both languages.

Regrettably, black eyes, I don't know Chinese, so I couldn't say. Take your word for it though-:) LOL
