Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).

The Quarter - Chaos, panic, disorder... our work here is done.
