Answer:  CUSHY JOB

(Cushion kinda gave away the answer, for me.  Although, I’m sure there are some out there who might not be familiar with the phrase.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Yet, all of their jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a nifty jumble as well.  Nice warehouse/factory setup.  I liked the little vending machine in the break room.  And, the guy testing the couch cushions has an even better job than the lady!  Fun little pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    The guys flirted with breaking their unspoken internal rule to not write a clue to the final answer using a word in the answer, since they used “cushion” as a clue for “cushy.”

    But their options were limited. I websearched synonyms for “cushion” and the only one I found used in the same context as upholstery that fits this cartoon was “bolster” (too obscure). They could have used a different cartoon and clue to hint at this answer, like for a beanbag.

    No biggie. Still a fun one to solve.

    A nice, easy one for me today after a tougher one the day before. Cushion was too much of a clue in the end. But I didn’t really need that one.
