To celebrate two decades of fat guys in comically small coats, David Spade shared a recollection about working on Tommy Boy (which still totally holds up, no matter how strenuously kids today might tweet their preference for 2 Paul 2 Blart, or some piece of garbage) with Chris Farley, the Oliver Hardy to Spade’s Stan Laurel. Here’s what he wrote on Instagram.

Im told that today is the 20th anniversary of Tommyboy. Aside from that making me older than fuck i have to say thanks to everyone who saw it and has said nice things about it over the years. I was very lucky to be in this movie with one if the all time funniest mother fuckers the late great chris farley. Its hard to read but on the poster it says " david, lets stick together! Signed by chris. We gave each other autographed posters as a joke back then. Now i see it in my office and skim over it because if i think about that for more than 5 seconds ill start bawling. Like now. As chris would say. What a pussy #RIP
Spade, who’s currently finishing up Joe Dirt 2 for a release later this year, also keeps every season of Rules of Engagement on DVD in his office. He uses them as a booster seat.
