Trimarian Court Bingo

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

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).
