Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
