After a series of e-mails with the upstream maintainer, I've gotten
clarification that clauses 4-6 are meant to be jokes via the addition
of a new clause 8: http://dumb.sourceforge.net/index.php?page=licences
[There isn't a clause 7.]

I'm personally still not happy with the license, but that's because
it's not sane, not because the intent is to make it fail the DFSG. [I
don't have an opinion about whether Debian continues to distribute
