Trimarian Court Bingo

Two Peers take a joint Associate. The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Somebody drops the Sword of State. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household.
Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test.
Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" FREE SPACE Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't.
Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony.
Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Court is more than one hour late. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." King Odo says that someone "rocks". Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown.

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 - None asked nor given!
