Trimarian Court Bingo

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