Derived from the British "arse", ...

Bollocks. That's just wishful thinking.

Would "amazingly Awesome-Sauce" be a fair equivalent to "totally Kicks Ass"?

i'd enjoy if they tried to take on the word fark.

etymologically, semantically, and syntactically, that is a fascinating word.

Depends on the context.

"Ass" meaning "rear-end" is derived from the British "arse."

However, "ass" meaning "a stupid, obnoxious, or oafish person" is derived from "ass," i.e. the group of mammals related to the donkey.

When we say that something is asinine, we are using the latter sense.  Something is stupid or obstinate like an ass (donkey).
