If you’ve been to an establishment and noticed the cashier’s sweaty body, you know how uncomfortable it is. The sexually explicit lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money”, however, offers a funny and clever explanation. The term is used to describe a short stocking. The verb “sock away,” refers to putting money into a stocking.
The Victorian Age saw the first toys for stuffed animals and they’ve been a symbol of American pop culture for more than an entire century. Sock monkeys are comprised of a pair socks and often shaped into animals. They can be worn with feet or to hang on strings. These toys are extremely loved by children as well as adults of all ages. Sock monkeys can sing too!
The state animal that is officially recognized in Illinois is the sock monkey. The sock monkey was popularized by John Nelson in 1857, when he accidentally adopted two monkeys from an antique market. Later, the name of the sock monkey was changed to fit into an exhibit devoted to the stuffed monkeys. Since then, the museum is now open to the public. The gift shop and museum are open throughout the winter months and will be completed on April 15th. The museum has more than 21,000 sock monkeys. The museum is free to visit and a portion of profits will go to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
