Trimarian Court Bingo

The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Court is more than one hour late.
Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Two Peers take a joint Associate. Somebody drops the Sword of State. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed.
Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. FREE SPACE "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name.
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..." The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony.
The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..."

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).
