If you’ve ever been to a store and noticed the cashier’s sweaty body, you’re aware of how uncomfortable it is. However, the sexy lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” offers a humorous and clever explanation. This term refers to an unintentional stocking. And the word “sock away” refers to the act of putting money into the stocking.
The Victorian Age saw the first stuffed monkeys and they have been a symbol of American pop culture for more than 100 years. Sock monkeys are made of a pair socks and often transformed into animals. They can be worn on the feet or hang from strings. These funky toys are incredibly popular with children and adults of all age groups. There are even singing sock monkeys!
The sock monkey is the official state animal of Illinois. The sock monkey 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 adapted for an exhibit of stuffed monkeys. Since then, the museum is now open to the public. The gift shop and the museum are open through winter. They will close by April 15. Visitors can see more than two thousand sock monkeys in the museum. The museum is free to enter and a portion of proceeds will be donated to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
