Michael Phelps is Back

... And So is the 'Buzz'

7/11/2009 1:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Michael Phelps is Back... And So is the 'Buzz'

A rep for Subway tells us we have the bong wrong idea -- saying it's just an unfortunate coincidence, adding the Fresh Buzz site has been around for 3 years.

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.

I think the problem with Phelps is that his eyes are a little too close together, and he has a sort of long face, so the result is a look similar to a mongoloid or retarded type of appearance.

So people automatically assume he just isn't intelligent. They may be wrong, but the whole marijuana incident doesn't help his case.

Ya see, when pot becomes legal, they will have this advertising campaign in the "bag." They are definitely thinking a "head."
