Default blow-off on bucket

Is there any good way to put a blow off tube onto a bucket fermenter?

Use the same hole the airlock fits into... You can use the same diameter tubing that you use for your siphon, or bottling wand...

Put the other end of the tubing into something about 1/2 filled with StarSan solution... You don't want to use plain water here.

Wouldnt you be able to pop the top off the airlock and put some 1/2 inch tubing on the spout then put the tubing into a jug of water?

Thanks guys, I intend to brew an Imperial Stout in a couple of months and if all goes well it'll be big and fast. Just needed to know if I should save a few pennies for a carboy or to just go ahead with a bucket. Sounds like I'll do the ladder.
