Trimarian Court Bingo

The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks.
"Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..."
Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. FREE SPACE Two Peers take a joint Associate. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun.
The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear.
Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Court is more than one hour late. King Odo says that someone "rocks". The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't.

Instructions: Pay attention in court! If you see or hear something described in one of the boxes, mark off that box. If you mark off five boxes in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally -- true diagonal, not "sort of" diagonal), jump up and shout "Bingo!" (and pray that the Crown has a sense of humor).

The Quarter - Be afraid. Be very afraid.
