Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).



Drusilla sez: Stultorum quanto status sublimior, tanto manifestior turpitudo!
