You’ve probably seen the sweaty boob of a cashier in a store. However, the sexy lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” offers a humorous and clever explanation. The term is used to describe an unintentional stocking. And the word “sock away” refers to the act of putting money in a stocking.
The concept of a stuffed animal came from the Victorian Age, and the sock monkey has been an icon of American pop culture for more than 100 years. Sock monkeys are made from a pair of socks and are often shaped into animals. They can be worn on the feet or to hang on a string. These funky toys are loved by children and adults of all age groups. There are even sock monkeys that sing!
The sock monkey is the official state animal of Illinois. The sock mongoose was first introduced by John Nelson in 1857, when he accidentally adopted two monkeys from an antique market. The sock monkey’s name was later adopted for an exhibit of stuffed monkeys. The museum is open to the public since then. The gift shop and museum are open since the winter and will be completed on April 15th. Visitors can look at over two thousand sock monkeys in the museum. Admission is free, and a part of the money is donated to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
