Separated at birth: Davey Jones and Cthulhu

Davey Jones and Cthulhu, separated at birth?

I know I seem to have Lovecraft on the brain lately, but when it is thrown up in your face like with Davey Jones, the villain in the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, something must be said. Let's explore the similarities between Captain Davey Jones, in his recent Disney incarnation, and Cthulhu, unspeakable Great Old One. (Spoilers follow people, you are warned!)
Davey Jones: Tentacles suitable for playing the organ.
Cthulhu: Suitably tentacled.
Cthulhu: Waking him will drive you insane.
Davey Jones: Driven insane by his lost love.
Cthulhu: Lives in a city under the sea (just like SpongeBob SquarePants).
Davey Jones: Drives a boat under the sea (just like SpongeBob SquarePants).
Davey Jones: Stores his still beating heart in a chest.
Cthulhu: Alien creature who may not even have a heart to pump its blood.
Cthulhu: "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming"
Davey Jones: On his ship Davey Jones likes sailing
(Not this Davey Jones!)
