Trimarian Court Bingo

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

The Quarter - If someone isn't offended, it probably isn't funny!
