-What's the difference between completed and finished?

During a recent linguistic conference in London, Samsunder Balgobin, a linguist from Guyana, was asked about the difference between the words 'completed' and 'finished'.
The questions was this, "Some say there is no difference between 'complete' and 'finished'. Please explain the difference in a way that's easy to understand.
Mr. Balgobin's response was, "When you marry the right woman, you are 'complete'.
If you marry the wrong woman, you are 'finished'.
And, if the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are 'completely finished'".
