Trimarian Court Bingo

The Court Herald mispronounces somebody's name. Earl Benen disrupts court with his madcap hijinks. Award of Arms scroll begins with something other than the phrase "Praiseworthy are those..." Female retainer wearing a dress is holding a spear. Someone uses the phrase, "I beg a boon!"
The Court Herald announces somebody whose name is a bad pun. Somebody says "Busted!" to the recipient of an award. Two Peers take a joint Associate. The crowd does that stupid "Oooh... Ahhh..." thing when a scroll is displayed. "Anno Societatis" pronounced in more than one way by Court Herald(s).
Yet another Kingdom office changes hands. Audible laughter at an inappropriate time from the naughty Peers standing in the back. FREE SPACE The Crown gives out no awards with the word "Argent" in their names. Every single Herald comes up to "elevate" one of their members for passing a test.
Royal Retainer picks his or her nose. Court is more than one hour late. The Order of the White Scarf hold a faux Knighting ceremony. The Crown calls someone up to give them an award, and starts with "You've been bad..." The Queen has a triskele somewhere on her garb.
The Crown gives three or more awards to their own retainers and/or household. King Odo says that someone "rocks". Somebody drops the Sword of State. Somebody makes a completely inaudible presentation to the Crown. Yet another guild is formed with great pomp and circumstance.

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 - Forsooth. Forsooth.
