Short stories

Every so often, somebody will say that Hemingway wrote the greatest short story ever, in only 6 words:

For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.

Well, I wonder if we can get a bit shorter:

Check the safety, Ernie!

There you go: biography, dispatched in 4 words. If you didn’t like that, perhaps you can seek solace in religion:

Jesus wept.

(That was also my English teacher’s favourite sentence.)
Anyone got any good one word stories?
