As easy as falling off a log
Some expressions are easy to understand. The words create a picture in your mind.
'As easy as falling off a log' is one such expression. It describes a job that does not take much effort, the simplest thing possible. If you ever tried to walk on a fallen tree log you understand what the expression means. It is easier to fall off the log than to stay on it.
The expression is often used today. For example, you might hear a student say to her friend that her spelling test was as easy as falling off a log.
