Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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 - What a bunch of crazy kids!
