Not from a dictionary??

Actually, I found it [after I'd voted, of course] in the Grandiloquent Dictionary.

And I found it, also after I voted, at urbandictionary.com. (Actually, I didn’t find it. My friend Google did, and was kind enough to share the information.) It gives this example of usage:

"After work, I xertzed about 9 cobble-lobbers at the libation emporium.”

The meaning of “cobble-lobber” is left as an exercise for the student.

I've been away unexpectedly for a couple of days, so couldn't submit a def
or vote. I sent the car rental def you used for me in public and clearly
marked it NAD, so I'd be grateful if you would show me as not playing in
this round rather than getting 0 points.

It's in a few other non-official-dictionary sources and articles, at
least one of which I'd looked at when considering dealing that exact
word in the past.

It shows as a submitted word "pending investigation" in the Collins
Online dictionary.
