Doing timing

A white collar criminal got sentenced to prison. His first day there, all the prisoners were in the cafeteria, having lunch. One prisoner said, “97,” and everyone started laughing. Another prisoner said, “169,” and more hilarity ensued. The new guy asked his cellmate what was so funny.
“We’ve been here so long, we’ve heard every joke imaginable. So we just assigned numbers for every joke. That way, you just say the number, everyone recalls the joke, and we enjoy a good laugh!”
The new guy figured he’d give it a go and said, “202!” No response. “150!” Nothing.
He asked his cellmate, “Why didn’t anyone laugh?”
The cellmate shrugged, “Don’t feel bad; some people just can’t tell a joke.”
