That's the name of the freaky silent "mummers" physical theatre troupe that uses surreal masks and weird props to suggest facial expressions and communication including, yes, rolls of toilet paper. I couldn't remember it until I heard the name tonight (in an unlikely setting -- on a rerun of Everybody Loves Raymond).
Here's their website and here a Boston Globe article from this past December (2012) on the occasion of the 40th anniversary year of their founding.
I remember seeing commercials for them back in the 1970s as a little boy watching the channels from New York City -- and I remember being scared by them.
Here is a YouTube clip (which starts off with rough quality) of when they were on The Muppet Show in 1976. It's a light-hearted and upbeat segment.
I'm home now watching TV (see above) and still feelling somewhat under the weather, although I'm better than earlier today. This cold and/or sinus infection waxes and wanes. At this point, I'm not sure I'll be able to go to work, at least in the morning.
I may try to post my weekend pictures -- although upon review there aren't that many of them, and I'm pretty tired right now.
