Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
