EmoNe LoDs

Loadsamoney is a term associated with Harry Enfield's character called "Loadsamoney", created by Enfield for a skit.

I am Welding This Door / I AM WELDING THIS DOAH

A memorable quote uttered by one of the voice actors in Killing Floor while wielding a door, it's remembered due to the Cockney-accented pronunciation of the word "door" and is often used for comedic effect in Killing Floor videos relating to door-welding in-game.
