Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
