No, something in the ignition system(not necessarily the plug) is bad
if the plug is wet, because no ignition was occurring. Super rich
running will also cause this, but we're talking very rich...

You mean you dropped it in oil? If so, yeah, just clean it, let it
dry and reinstall. Double check the gap in case you dropped it on
If it came out of the engine covered in oil, you've got a serious
problem and $12 spark plugs are the least of your worries. On the
20vt, oil on the top half of the plug means you have a valve cover
gasket leak; a flashlight will confirm that easily...
