Trimarian Court Bingo

Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Court is more than one hour late. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Two Peers take a joint Associate.
Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance.
The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." FREE SPACE Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony.
The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands.
Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"

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).
