Trimarian Court Bingo

Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Two Peers take a joint Associate. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award.
Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. King Odo says that someone "rocks". The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Court is more than one hour late.
Somebody drops the Sword of State. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. FREE SPACE The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name.
"Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear.
Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows.

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).
