More Wise than You Know

Despite Muphry's Law (which guarantees I will make some kind of error in this post), I have to share this sentence from a recent post by a friend:

The problem with ignorance is that you never know what your ignorant about.
Clever, that.

At the risk of being a grammar Nazi, it seems your friend is slightly ignorant of the difference between "your" and "you're". Sorry, but it's one of my pet peeves-- otherwise the quote is golden!

The you're/your error, generally, is bothering me less than it used to. But I admit I found it hard to pass up this particular example.
