Trimarian Court Bingo

Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie.
Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. King Odo says that someone "rocks". Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Two Peers take a joint Associate. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names.
Somebody drops the Sword of State. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" FREE SPACE Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks.
Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. 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. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Court is more than one hour late.

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).
