Not really seeing this is evil, it's just "not what you're used to".
If the language parses $object->method as a /call/ to method, you have
no way to refer to the method object itself.
Note that I have no idea whether you /can/ refer to the method itself
in PHP and don't care enough about that ridiculous excuse for a
language to find out, but you'll find a similar distinction in Scheme,
obviously there it's about plain old functions, not methods.

geteuid function, not the result of the function itself"
