Trimarian Court Bingo

Someone who kneels before the Thrones really should have been wearing underwear. Court is more than one hour late. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Somebody drops the Sword of State. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks.
Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!" The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb. Person called before the Crown has to be coaxed to come forward far enough to kneel on the pillows. The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear.
Clothing fashions are visibly influenced by a recent movie. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. FREE SPACE The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test.
The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Somebody does court schtick which is apparently supposed to be funny... but it isn't. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. Royal Retainer picks his or her nose.
The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Two Peers take a joint Associate. King Odo says that someone "rocks". Yet another Kingdom office changes hands.

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 - Laugh while you can, monkey boy!
