  1. Hmmm,

    The classic answer belongs to Paul. All the men were married, so not a single man got wet.

    However, since they ALL did get wet, not a single man got wet works, too.

    Two great answers, two winners of the day!!!

  2. They were all married. So all the married men got wet, but not any single men got wet.

  3. Hi, Leroy Jenkins here. I have spent the last 12 years of my life trying to comprehend this riddle because of its awkward wording and couldn’t stumble across the answer. Even after discovering the answer I didn’t know what was meant by it. What made this so humorous? Finally after all my endeavors I get it now, no single men were wet. Only married men. I can now safely say after these 12 years… Ha..ha..

  4. This made me think of the following lyrics from Scooters “And No Matches”
    “Alright, listen
    Three men in a boat with four cigarettes
    And no matches
    How do they manage to smoke”
