I'd say not-funny or funny-once under Heinlein's ranking system.

Also can't tell if DJ is supposed to be Jew or Muslim.

Vijay happens to be a Sikh (hence the Dastar he's wearing).

Btw, what is Heinlein's ranking system? I couldn't find a reference online.

It's just a reference to his book The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. There's a cute artificial intelligence that the main character not only makes use of to help with their revolution, but which also tells jokes. The main character helps the AI better understand humour throughout the novel by ranking the jokes the AI tells. Some are not-funny, some are funny-once, some are funny-always.

It's an obscure reference and I'm not surprised you found nothing online. It's a relatively short novel though and I'd recommend anyone read it.
