If you use dict to look up the word "cobbler" with a "standard" set of dictionaries installed, you’ll get a GCIDE definition and the following Wordnet definition:

cobbler (n)

  1. a person who makes or repairs shoes [syn: {shoemaker}]
  2. tall sweetened iced drink of wine or liquor with fruit
  3. made of fruit with rich biscuit dough usually only on top of the fruit [syn: {deep-dish pie}]

Normally, if you misspell a word or try to look up the plural form of a noun, dict will suggest the correct word. However, if you look up "cobblers" you get:

cobblers (n)

  1. nonsense; "I think that is a load of cobblers"
  2. a man’s testicles (from Cockney rhyming slang: cobbler’s awl rhymes with ball)

It’s not clear to me whether this was non-graceful failure or even failure at all. It is clear that it was not what I was looking for. An educational experience nonetheless.
