Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
