Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
