Trimarian Court Bingo

The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Court is more than one hour late. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test.
Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Two Peers take a joint Associate. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Somebody drops the Sword of State.
The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. FREE SPACE The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award.
King Odo says that someone "rocks". Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony.
Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. 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. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." 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).
