You’ve probably seen the sweaty boob of a cashier at the aisles of a store. However, the sexy lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” is a hilarious and clever explanation. The phrase actually refers to a short stocking. The word “sock away,” refers to putting money into an account in a stocking.
The idea of a stuffed monkey came from the Victorian Age, and the sock monkey has been an icon of American pop culture for nearly 100 years. Sock monkeys are constructed from a pair of socks and are often shaped into animals. They can be worn on the feet or hung from a string. These fun toys are loved by kids and adults of all different ages. You can even find sock monkeys that sing!
The state animal that is officially recognized in Illinois is the sock monkey. John Nelson, who accidentally adopted two monkeys from an antique market in 1857, was the first to make the sock monkey popular. The name of the sock monkey was changed to make it suitable for an exhibit devoted to the stuffed monkeys. Since then, the museum is now open to the public. The gift shop and museum are open through the winter months. They will close on April 15th. Visitors can see more than two thousand sock monkeys inside the museum. Admission is free, and a part of the money is donated to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
