Trimarian Court Bingo

Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony.
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. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed.
Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. FREE SPACE King Odo says that someone "rocks". Court is more than one hour late.
Two Peers take a joint Associate. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb.
Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance.

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).
