I HATE with a passion this expression that I find quite retarded, to say the least.

So obviously I had to research it and see where it came from:

"If you have a weak constitution, I recommend that you bypass the London Dungeon.

It was there that I learned the origin of the phrase “off the hook.” Detainees were strung up on a hook through the torso, see, and if they survived a certain amount of time, they were let off the hook. Good luck to you, pip pip, and all that rot."
