Nicely done. The shortest published horror story is part of "Knock" by Fredric Brown:

Speaking of short jokes, here's a longer joke about short jokes;

Derek is sent to prison. During his first dinner there, in the crowded dinner hall, one of the other prisoners stands up and shouts, "24". All the other prisoners fall about laughing. A second prisoner stands up and shouts, "167", again, all the prisoners laugh - some even literally roll in the aisles.

That evening, Derek asks his cell mate what on earth was going on. "Ah", his cell mate replies, "We've all been in here a long time, and there's only one joke book in the prison library. We've all read it so many times that we know it off by heart. We just shout out the page number of the joke and everybody knows what we mean".

After a couple of weeks of this, Derek feels confident enough to try for himself. During a quiet period in the dining hall he stands up and shouts, "138". Silence. Nobody even giggles. Mortified, he sits back down. His cell mate turns to him and says;

"It's the way you tell them"

The next day, Derek wants a second chance. So during dinner, he stands up and shouts "922". All the prisoners start laughing, some of them rolling on the floor.

"That was a good one!" Says Derek to his mate.

"Oh yes, we had never heard that one before!"

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly her husband burst into the kitchen.

"Careful. CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my GOD! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my GOD! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful.

CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind?

Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"

The wife stared at him. "What the hell is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?"

The husband calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving."
