Carson Palmer may be a decade late to the party, but at least he's making a grand entrance.
The Arizona Cardinals' quarterback showed his humorous side with his first posts on Instagram and Twitter.
Palmer put up an image of his face photoshopped onto the poster for the Fox show, "Last Man on Earth." Palmer changed the title to, "The Last Man on Social."
Making the joke even better is the fact that Palmer bears some resemblance to Will Forte, the star of "Last Man on Earth."

Palmer joins 1.44 billion other active users on the world's most popular social network.
It would have made sense for the 2002 Heisman Award winner to join Facebook in 2005, shortly after it was launched and when he was a Pro Bowl quarterback. But back then the social network was mostly used by high school and college students. Now, one decade later, Palmer is 35 but is five years younger than the average American Facebook user.
Palmer is hoping to have a lot of good news to post on Facebook as he returns after tearing his ACL last November. Shortly before the injury he had signed a three-year, $50 million extension with the Arizona Cardinals that has him under contract through 2017.
If Palmer needs any tips for how to use Facebook he should turn to social media savant Tom Brady.
