This is really cool.

To get it run I had to change the shebang line to:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w ########             

I think that's padded with the correct number of spaces to the right. For some reason I couldn't make it correct within <code> tags here so I had to put it in <pre>
I'll have to play with Deparse and see if I can figure out what this is doing.
Oh, and I like the pun. :)

Update: Your new first line still doesn't work on my system. When I run it I get
sm3g-~/perl/obfu$ ./egg1.pl bash: ./egg1.pl: No such file or directory

I've had this happen before with other shell scripts and I'm pretty sure this is because bash sees the shebang line, looks for /usr/bin/perl-w (so the executable would have to be "perl-w") and can't find it. Maybe you have "perl-w" aliased to "perl -w"?
When I try it with #!/usr/bin/perl -w######## I get Unrecognized switch: -#######  (-h will show valid options). I think perl is trying to parse the #### as options.

This is all on a pretty vanilla Linux Mandrake 8.1 with Perl 5.6.0
What OS are you running? Mine might just be messing with my head today. :)

Update2 Electric Boogaloo: I finally decided the best way to run this was to just do a perl program.pl It makes everything happy, birds sing, butterflies start floating by and all the children of the world sing together in harmony. Well, at least one of those.

sm3g
perl -le 's;;uoli;;$a=length;y;g-w;e-u;;;$a--;s;j;$a;;print'
