Do you know the diff. between COMPLETE and FINISHED ?

Message  Guilaine le Jeu 15 Nov - 11:51

> No dictionary has been able to adequately explain
the difference between

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 and
> it entitled him to receive an invitation to dine with the Queen
