Sock Money – An Overview

If you’ve been to the store and noticed the cashier’s sweaty boob you’re aware of how uncomfortable that is. The sexually explicit lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” however, is a clever and humorous explanation. This term refers to an unintentional stocking. And the word “sock away” refers to the act of putting money in the stocking.

The Victorian Age saw the first toys for stuffed animals and they’ve been a symbol of American pop culture for over a century. Sock monkeys are made of a pair of socks and are usually shaped into animals. They can be worn on the feet or strung on strings. These toys are extremely popular with children and adults of all age groups. You can even find singing sock monkeys!

The sock monkey is the official state animal of Illinois. John Nelson, who accidentally adopted two monkeys from an antique marketplace in 1857 was the first to make the sock monkey a hit. The name of the sock monkey was changed to make it suitable for the museum that was dedicated to stuffed monkeys. The museum has been open to the public since then. The gift shop and museum are open from the winter months and will be completed by the 15th of April. The museum houses over 21,000 sock monkeys. The museum is free to enter and a portion of profits will go to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
