Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
