Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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: The crabs come in on the Captain's dinghy!
