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

The idea of a stuffed monkey originated 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 strings. They are very loved by children as well as adults of all different ages. There are even socks that sing!

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. Later, the name of the sock monkey was changed to make it suitable for a museum dedicated to monkeys that were stuffed. The museum is open to the public since then. The gift shop and the museum are open throughout the winter months. They will close on April 15th. Visitors can see more than two thousand sock monkeys inside the museum. The museum is free to visit and a portion of proceeds will be donated to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
