The difference between Complete and Finished:

No English dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference
between the two words. In a recently held linguistic competition in London,
England, attended by the best in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese
man from Bachelors Adventure, was the clear winner with a standing ovation
lasting over 5 minutes. Here is his answer, in which he received an
invitation to dine with the Queen (who made a call to him after the
contest). He also won a trip to travel the world in style and a case of
25-year old Eldorado Rum, for his answer.

The Question: How do you explain the difference between COMPLETE and
FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand? Some people say there is no
difference between the two.

Samsundar's Answer: "When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE.
When you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one
catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!"
