Trimarian Court Bingo

The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"
The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Court is more than one hour late. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear.
"Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s). The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. FREE SPACE Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands.
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. 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.
The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." Two Peers take a joint Associate. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. King Odo says that someone "rocks". The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names.

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).
