Earth and Pluto

Maybe it's just me, but I see a fairly remarkable resemblance between this false colour image of Pluto, and the view of Earth from space, particularly the tan coloured area in the upper part of Pluto (above the heart) and the shape of North America in the picture of the Earth. I see a similar "Mexico", "Gulf of Mexico", "Florida Panhandle", east coast of the U.S., a hint of Canadian arctic islands in the far north.  Plus, the blue parts of Pluto remind one of the ocean on Earth.

Maybe just a coincidence, or perhaps the person doing the false colour assignments was subconsciously choosing a colour scheme that gives this impression.
