Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Off like a snip.
  Off, like chimera, glinting, flitting, gay and light and free.
  Off like the lid of a pumpkin pie.
  Off like a shot.
            —Richard Harris Barham
  Gang off like a squib or a cracker on a rejoicing night, in a noise and a stink, and are never heard of after.
            —Charles Macklin
