No dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between
COMPLETE and FINISHED.

However, in a recent linguistic conference held in London, England, and
attended by some of the best linguists in the world: Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clear winner.

His final challenge was this:

Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. Please
explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.

Here is his astute answer:

"When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!"

His answer was received with a standing ovation
