: The term "cush" is often used to describe an undertaking considered to be easy. What is the origin of this term?

I would think it comes from this word:

Main Entry: cushy
Pronunciation: 'ku-shE
Function: adjective
Inflected Form(s): cush·i·er; cush·i·est
Etymology: Hindi khush pleasant, from Persian khush
: entailing little hardship or difficulty. A cushy job with a high salary.
- cush·i·ly /'ku-sh&-lE/ adverb
(Merriam-Webster)
