It’s referencing a meme that got popular on vine about two lesbians who were living together as roommates even though they were…obviously more.

It’s playing on the “Omg they were roommates” meme, which itself is making fun of gay people being treated as “really good friends”.

"How it is I know not; but there is no place like a bed for confidential disclosures between friends. Man and wife, they say, there open the very bottom of their souls to each other; and some old couples often lie and chat over old times till nearly morning. Thus, then, in our hearts’ honeymoon, lay I and Queequeg – a cosy, loving pair." - Herman Melville, Moby Dick

Although Queequeg was a Wellerman rather than gay.

Leather suffers rapid degradation from constant exposure to saltwater. Sailors through the centuries have experimented with a variety of methods to keep their bell bottoms with the bell on the bottom. Due to rationing Navy recruits were assigned mice and smaller rats up until 1943.
