    circuit city

    A man is saying while "chuckling":

    "Circuit City, kiss my guinea ass"

    As their men brought him a man tied up with his mouth taped

    I guess it has nothing to do with the store Cuircuit City. Still I can't get what he means by this expression.

    Can it mean "Great!" or "Good Job"?

    Thanks

    Guinea is an offensive word for an Italian-American.

    I have no idea, sadly. I think the guinea ass is just his butt. More contex could help.

    Re: circuit city

    Can we have more context?
    Do they mention circuit city wherever you found this sentence?

    Re: circuit city

    This is the only time "Circuit City" was mentioned in this episode. It was capitalized, that's why I thought it has something to do with the store.
    Also, with that taped man, as far as I can see, there were electronic devices, mp3 and stuff.

    It's Sons of Monarchy season 1 ep.2 seeds (minute 29)

    Thanks

    I can find no other reference to Circuit City, other than the store, so I can only assume that is what he meant. As far as "guinea" ass is concerned, I think he's referring to himself as a "guinea" though I have no idea what that suggests.

    To give a rather convoluted example, let's say that I have just cooked a particularly delicious hamburger at home and am very proud of it and I think that it is far better than a burger you would get at a famous burger store (!). I am half-Irish so I might choose to describe myself as such. I might serve the food to a friend and shout triumphantly:

    "McDonalds, kiss my Irish ass!"

    I would mean "Hey, McDonalds, look at how good my burger is. It's better than yours so kiss my ass". Kiss my ass is a slang American term meaning, roughly "Go away". It's very dismissive.

    If the man in the show is surrounded by electronic items, I think he's saying "Hey, Circuit City, I don't need you, I have my own electronics" or something similar.

    Re: circuit city

    Wow!! Very nice examples. I got it.

    So, I'll translated as if he said "Look how awesome I'm, Cuircut City"

    Can't thank you enough emsr2d2 (F)
