Trimarian Court Bingo

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