Sarcasm is only "humor" in a dark sense.

Synonyms: derision, mockery, ridicule, scorn, sneering, scoffing; irony; cynicism.

Origin: mid 16th century: from French sarcasme, or via late Latin from late Greek sarkasmos, from Greek sarkazein ‘tear flesh,’ in late Greek ‘gnash the teeth, speak bitterly’ (from sarx, sark- ‘flesh’).

Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between sarcasm and seriousness.

Sarcasm is not at all meant to be humorous, but cutting, mocking, insulting language. The description you've given would be in line for facetious - someone being jocular, humorous, playfully amusing. :)
