The term "ounce" is used two weighs (pun definitely intended ! ...)

A "FLUID ounce", abbreviated fl. oz., is a measure of VOLUME, NOT weight. A quart contains 32 FLUID ounces.

For measuring WEIGHT, the term "ounce" means one-sixteenth of a pound.

Using more accurate terminology, the question would be "How come 10 FLUID OUNCES of water weigh more than 10 FLUID OUNCES of air?" (And I just realize the meme should say "ounces of water weigh more", not "weighs more".)

And, yeah, it took me quite awhile to find out that "ounces" can mean "fluid" ounces.
