Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
