If you’ve ever been to a store and noticed a cashier’s sweaty boob, you’re aware of how uncomfortable it is. However, the sexy language behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” is a hilarious and clever explanation. The term actually refers to an unintentional stocking. The verb “sock away,” refers to putting money into an account in 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 from a pair of socks, and are often transformed into animals. They can be worn with feet or to hang on a string. These fun toys are loved by children and adults of all different ages. Sock monkeys are even able to sing!
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 person to make the sock monkey a hit. The sock monkey’s name was later adopted for a stuffed monkey museum. Since then, the museum has opened its doors to the public. The gift shop and the museum are open throughout the winter months. They will close on April 15th. Visitors can view more than two thousand sock monkeys in the museum. Admission is free, and a portion of the profits go to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
