Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
