Michael Phelps is back in America's good graces after setting a new world record this week -- too bad a highly ironic advertisement on Subway's website keeps rehashing Phelps' pot smokin' past.

By the way, Phelps says when he gets the munchies, he goes for the meatball sub with jalapeno -- no word if he likes it toasted.
