Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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 - Forsooth. Forsooth.
