Sock Money Options

You’ve probably seen the sweaty boob of a cashier at the aisles of a store. But the sexy lingo behind “No Sweaty Boob or Sock Money” offers a humorous and clever explanation. The term is used to describe an unintentional stocking. The verb “sock away,” refers to putting money into a stocking.

The Victorian Age saw the first stuffed monkeys and they have been an emblem of American pop culture for almost 100 years. Sock monkeys are made from a pair of socks and are often shaped into animals. They can be worn on the feet or strung on a string. These funky toys are loved by kids and adults of all ages. You can even find socks that sing!

The official state animal 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. Later, the name of the sock monkey was changed to fit into a museum dedicated to stuffed monkeys. Since then, the museum is now open to the public. The museum and gift shop are open through the winter months. They will be closed by April 15. The museum houses over 21,000 sock monkeys. Admission is free, and a portion of the money is donated to Chimp Sanctuary Northwest.
