Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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.
