If you’ve ever walked into an establishment and noticed a cashier’s sweaty boob, you know how uncomfortable it is. The flirty lingo that goes with “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” However, it has a clever and funny explanation. This phrase refers to an unintentional stocking. And the verb “sock away” refers to putting money into an account.
The Victorian Age saw the first toys for stuffed animals and they’ve been an emblem of American pop culture for more than an entire century. Sock monkeys are constructed from a pair of socks and are often shaped into animals. They can be worn on the feet or strung on a string. They are very popular with both children and adults of all ages. There are even singing sock monkeys!
The sock monkey is the official state animal of Illinois. John Nelson, who accidentally adopted two monkeys from an antique market in 1857 was the first to make the sock monkey a hit. The name of the sock monkey was later adopted for a stuffed monkey museum. The museum has been open to the public since then. The gift shop and the museum are open through the winter season. They will be closed on April 15th. The museum houses over 21,000 sock monkeys. The museum is free to enter and a percentage of profits will go to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
