Can Brutus Change My Eleventeen Dollar Bill?

It's weird looking at this strip, reading through it to see if I can garner some commentary from it that I didn't even notice Wastrel said "thirty" until the last panel. What I was going to comment about was the fact that even though Brutus is shown having money issues he has $30 to give to a bum. Doesn't Brutus know it's not good to give a bum money? Giving them money gives them an opportunity to buy more liquor which is probably a contributing factor to their homelessness. Now Wastrel is going to buy a bottle of Knob Creek Whiskey then pass out at the corner of 7th and New Jersey, choking on his own vomit.
