I don't know. I think the buckets in the Bailout comic are full of money. That's what I saw anyway. I think it's a political reference to throwing money at problems, which is also colloquially referred to as a "Bailout." 15:26, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

Not everything is a political jab. Also money wouldn't be represented (even in this stylised case) as circular globs of randoms sizes. So yeah, it's probably water or some other fluid.Pennpenn (talk) 04:53, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

The whole "Dirty Robes" could also be a play on a masturbation joke as semen and other fluids will become visible under a blacklight. -- Para (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I think that is almost certainly the intended meaning. The phrase 'really dirty' would have a double meaning (unclean and/or rude), and the pause is the character either:
  • Realising mid-sentence what the 'dirt' is
  • Trying to decide whether to mention the 'dirt'
  • Trying to find the politest way of pointing it out.
Anyone disagree? --Pudder (talk) 16:03, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Episcopalians don't generally go for curses and hexes either. 02:34, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
