Four men were in a boat on the lake.
The boat turns over, and all four men sink to the bottom of the lake,
yet not a single man got wet! Why?

I don't get it... I vote they are scuba divers and have wetsuits and all that jazz on, so they don't get wet.

I can't make anything out of his solution...

They are all married and none of them is SINGLE. so no SINGLE man got wet...

However, like you, I would say instead they were inside something waterproof: Metal box, wrappded in nylon (already dead)...
