Obstrufucated drivel

I downloaded the following winner of some nutty c contest.  It doesn't even compile on my Turboc compiler, I'm confused = why'd it win then ?


        double time, me= !0XFACE,

        not; int rested,   get, out;

        main(ly, die) char ly, **die ;{

            signed char lotte,

dear; (char)lotte--;

        for(get= !me;; not){

        1 -  out & out ;lie;{

        char lotte, my= dear,

        **let= !!me *!not+ ++die;


"The gloves are OFF this time, I detest you, snot\n\0sed GEEK!");

        do {not= *lie++ & 0xF00L* !me;

        #define love (char*)lie -

        love 1s *!(not= atoi(let

        [get -me?


(char)lotte: my- *love -
        'I'  -  *love -  'U' -

        'I'  -  (long)  - 4 - 'U' ])- !!
        (time  =out=  'a'));} while( my - dear

        && 'I'-1l  -get-  'a'); break;}}


(char)*lie++, (char)*lie++; hell:0, (char)*lie;

        get *out* (short)ly   -0-'R'-  get- 'a'^rested;

        do {auto*eroticism,

        that; puts(*( out

            - 'c'
-('P'-'S') +die+ -2 ));}while(!"you're at it");

for (*((char*)&lotte)^=

        (char)lotte; (love ly) [(char)++lotte+

        !!0xBABE];){ if ('I' -lie[ 2 +(char)lotte]){ 'I'-1l ***die; }

        else{ if ('I' * get *out* ('I'-1l **die[ 2 ])) *((char*)&lotte) -=

        '4' - ('I'-1l); not; for(get=!

get; !out; (char)*lie  &  0xD0- !not) return!!



        do{ not* putchar(lie [out

        *!not* !!me +(char)lotte]);

        not; for(;!'a';);}while(

            love (char*)lie);{

register this; switch( (char)lie

        [(char)lotte] -1s *!out) {

        char*les, get= 0xFF, my; case' ':

        *((char*)&lotte) += 15; !not +(char)*lie*'s';

        this +1s+ not; default: 0xF +(char*)lie;}}}

        get - !out;

        if (not--)

        goto hell;

            exit( (char)lotte);}

The problem are the 1s. If you change it to 1 it will compile. Maybe some compiler parse 1s as (short)1. But this is not standard.
