As a result of a radial velocity follow-up of OGLE planetary transit candidates in Carina, we report the discovery of two new transiting planets with very short orbital periods: OGLE-TR-113 with $m=1.35 \pm 0.22~M_{\rm Jup}$, $r=1.08^{+0.07}_{-0.05}~R_{\rm Jup}$, P=1.43 days, and OGLE-TR-132 with $m=1.01\, \pm\, 0.31~M_{\rm Jup}$, $r=1.15^{+0.80}_{-0.13}~R_{\rm Jup}$, P=1.69 days. These detections bring to three the number of known "very hot Jupiter" (Jovian exoplanets like OGLE-TR-56 with periods around 1.5 days). This indicates that the accumulation of periods around 3 days found in radial velocity surveys does not reflect an absolute limit.
