Benji Madden to ensure niece Harlow dates Mr. Right

Benji Madden has devoted himself to protecting the honor of his niece Harlow Winter Kate Madden, according to People:

“I’m going to be keeping a close eye on her,” Madden, 29, tells PEOPLE of the daughter of twin brother Joel Madden and his girlfriend Nicole Richie, 27. “I’ll leave the shotgun right by the door.”

Anyone else find it ironic that the guy who had sex with Paris Hilton is going to be dishing out dating advice? Then again, he does have access to a great object lesson.

BENJI: Nice to meet you, Timmy. Now before you take my niece out, I want to teach you kids a lesson about pre-marital intercourse. *unzips pants*
TIMMY: Jesus! What did you do? Wrap it in tin-foil then put it in the microwave?
BENJI: Something like that.
