You’ve probably seen the sweaty boob of a cashier in the aisles of a store. But the sexy lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” has a funny and clever explanation. This term refers to an unintentional stocking. The word “sock away,” refers to putting money into an account in a stocking.
The idea of a stuffed animal came from the Victorian Age, and the sock monkey has been a staple of American popular culture for over 100 years. Sock monkeys are constructed of a pair socks and often transformed into animals. They can be worn on the feet or hang from strings. They are very popular with both children and adults of all age groups. You can even find socks that sing!
The state animal that is officially recognized in Illinois is the sock monkey. John Nelson, who accidentally adopted two monkeys from an antique market in 1857 was the first person to make the sock monkey a hit. The name of the sock monkey was changed to fit into the museum that was dedicated to the stuffed monkeys. Since then, the museum has opened its doors to the public. The gift shop and museum are open from the winter and will be complete on April 15th. Visitors can see more than two thousand sock monkeys inside the museum. The museum is free to enter and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
