In a comment to this post Blake offers a useful translation from Deleuze and Guattari’s Kafka book:

I am basing myself in part on Deleuze and Guattari’s KAFKA, so the utterance as singularity has both ethical (they say political, but in a very general sense of political) and humorous dimensions at the same time. Humour is equated with joy. This is at the end of chapter 4 in a long footnote. “It’s the same thing: the politics of the utterance and the joy of desire” (my translation).

(Terence Blake, boldface is mine)

I note that Blake translates “énoncé” as “utterance” and not “statement” as in the other translation (see p.95 of the English and p.76 of the French)
