Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
