Pork Chops and Apple Sauce

What's the worst part about being held captive by Iran, the country most known for being part of the "axis of evil" and actively searching for nuclear technology for purely altruistic reasons? According to one captive it's being deprived of pork products and beer.

David Bloomer, of Ireland, was aboard the Kingdom of Bahrain when it was intercepted by the Iranian Navy last week. Yesterday, he and the four others taken captive were released by Iran after it was confirmed that the KOB simply made a mistake by entering Iran's waters. Mr. Bloomer was looking most forward to a brew and bacon telling the Irish Times that "[w]e were fed very well but there was no bacon or pork, of course, or alcohol where we were."

It must have been awful.
