 No English dictionary has been able to explain adequately the difference between the two words.
 
In a recently held linguistic competition held 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.  His answer earned an invitation to dine with the Queen, a trip to travel the world in style, and a case of 25 year old Eldorado rum.

His final question was this:  Explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.  Some people say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED.

Here is his astute 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!
Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
