What Is the Difference Between Complete and Finished?

I am not sure who to attribute this humor to but it is worth sharing. A friend sent it to me recently.

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 lasting over 5 minutes.
