You’ve probably seen the sweaty boob of a cashier in a shop. The sexually explicit lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money”, however, has a clever and funny explanation. The term actually refers to an unintentional stocking. The verb “sock away” refers to putting money in the stocking.
The idea of a stuffed monkey originated from the Victorian Age, and the sock monkey has been a symbol of American pop culture for more than 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 hung from a string. These funky toys are popular with children and adults of all ages. There are even singing sock monkeys!
The state animal that is officially recognized in Illinois is the sock monkey. The sock monkey was first popularized 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 museum are open since the winter months and will be fully operational on April 15th. Visitors can see more than two thousand sock monkeys in the museum. The museum is free to visit and a percentage of profits will go to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
