Knock by Fredric Brown [A compete short story in two sentences.]

There is a whole genre of two-sentence horror stories. For example:

"My father died peacefully in his sleep. But his passengers were screaming."

This will ruin your sleep: "I was home along when the phone rang. It was my employer, telling me that the company health plan was going on the Obamacare exchange."

Frederic Brown wrote a lot of good stuff. It's worth finding.
