Gotta love the English language.

  1. For what it’s worth, I looked up the word plush as well, to see if they’re related — and they aren’t. According to my dictionary, lush is from lusch, a Middle English word meaning slack. Plush is from Middle French peluche, meaning hair — still a word used in French for plush (as in a plush bear) or fleecy fabric.
