If you have an automatic it may have puked tranny fluid out the dipstick. It's common for the dipstick to not seal very well, or not be fully inserted. Under the right conditions, it will blurt a pretty big mess under the hood.
My project car does this. I currently have a white rag tied around the dipstick tube - that's how I finally figured out where the oil was comming from. The white rag is now red.
I guess I'll be replacing my dipstick when I finally start getting it back together.
