    Can any one tell the difference between

    'Completed' and 'Finished'?

    No dictionary has ever been able to
    define the difference between 'Complete' and
    'Finished.'

    However, in a linguistic conference,
    held in London England, Sun Sherman an Indian American,
    was the clever winner. His final challenge was this.
    His response was:

    When you marry the right woman, you are
    'Complete.' If you marry the wrong woman, you are
    'Finished.' ... And , when the right woman catches you
    with the wrong woman, you are 'Completely Finished.'

    His answer received a five minute
    standing ovation.
