Trimarian Court Bingo

Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose.
Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" Somebody drops the Sword of State. The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names.
The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. King Odo says that someone "rocks". 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.
The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Two Peers take a joint Associate.
Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed.

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 - Good comedy writes itself. We wrote this.
