I like the look of the 'y'. Dismusing is too much like unfunny, whereas 'dys' connotes a malfunction, i.e., "something went wrong with the joke".

I kind of think, neither! Unamusing, methinks, is far more er.. amusing!
Actually, I've decided to break apart amusing as a-musing, which means without musing, taking musing to mean being inspired by a Muse, amusing thus means without inspiration. Dysmusing therefore means depriving someone of their inspiration.
