Trimarian Court Bingo

The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. 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. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. King Odo says that someone "rocks".
The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. FREE SPACE Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"
Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Somebody drops the Sword of State. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun.
Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Court is more than one hour late. 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).

The Quarter - You either get it or you don't!
