Trimarian Court Bingo

Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed.
Somebody drops the Sword of State. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. 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..."
Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. FREE SPACE Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. Court is more than one hour late.
Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. King Odo says that someone "rocks". Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony.
The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Two Peers take a joint Associate. 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.

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).
