“What do you think of my Irish stew?”/“It could use a pinch of Gaelic.”

“Garlic” looks a bit like “Gaelic.” An Irish stew pun is:
 
Cook l: What do you think of my Irish stew?
Cook 2: It could use a pinch of Gaelic.

 
The joke has been cited in print since at least 2001.
 
“Arán is Irish for bread. It’s gaelic bread,” “How do you survive an Irish vampire?”/“Repel him with Gaelic” and “What is the favorite appetizer of Scottish people?”/“Gaelic bread” are related jokes.
