A “story” ("storey" in the United Kingdom) is another floor of a building. One joke is:
“I moved into a bungalow recently. Was going to move into a house, but that’s another storey.”
The joke has been cited since at least 2010, in a post about the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
storey (plural storeys)
1. (obsolete) A building; an edifice.
2. A floor or level of a building or ship.
2010 Edinburgh Fringe, best one liners. Do you agree ?
