The expression come from the world of professional sports refering to a
superior sports team which kicks their opponents ass meaning they won the
contest handily. It is a compliment, but not appropriate in some social
contexts, like its OK to say in a bar that the [insert your favorite teams
name here] are a kick ass team, but inappropriate at ... say a symphoney ...
"did you hear that kick ass basson?"

My opinions are my own, my employer knows nothing about it.
