Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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!
