Bell's Jokes Law states that the potential funniness of a joke is inversely proportional to its length.
Thus, long jokes, with excruciatingly long build-ups and high expectations rarely generate belly laughs, whilst short ones can easily take you by surprise and induce spontaneous mirth.
Long joke: An Scotsman, a trout, two donkeys and a nun went blah, blah, blah, blah...... blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...... blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah and do you know what the nun said?
Get trout of my house and take your key Dons with you. :O/

Short joke: What should you do if you find a trumpet growing in your garden?
Root it oot! :O)
