Trimarian Court Bingo

Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Court is more than one hour late. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows.
The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. 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..." The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear.
Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" FREE SPACE Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun.
Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Two Peers take a joint Associate. Somebody drops the Sword of State. 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.
Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb.

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).
