Is this supposed to be a pun?

I'm confused.
"There's an ELEMENT of truth in what you say..."
Then you have the first eighteen elements of the periodic table...

It's KINDA funny... in a very nerdy kind of way.

I was tired, and reading through the periodic table, and dozing off; and in between falling asleep at my desk I thought for some reason it would be funny if people included one of the elements in their sentences, especially when they were lying, so that they could always claim to have an element of truth in their statements.

{Iodine, arsenic, thorium, astatine, indium, iridium, tungsten, tellurium.}

Obviously was funnier while half-asleep.

All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense.
