Trimarian Court Bingo

Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear.
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. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household.
"Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. FREE SPACE The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award.
The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." 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. Court is more than one hour late. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name.
The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. King Odo says that someone "rocks". Two Peers take a joint Associate.

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).
