To "write a check (one's) ass can't cash" is poor-folks slang for making promises or boasting, then failing to deliver on same.

I think the confusion stems from the OP's use of the possessive. I'm guessing he meant "asses".

One could simply have said "Fucking HP, right?", and there would have been no confusion whatsoever, because fucking HP, right?
