Found it, kinda lame unless you're a historian

Dear Stephanie:
The official explanation for the number, which is not entirely coterminous with the REAL explanation, is that 33 signifies two things: the year Prohibition was repealed (1933), and the number of words in the legend printed above the number on cans and returnable bottles. I quote:
"Rolling Rock from glass lined tanks in the Laurel Highlands. We tender this premium beer... beer lovers for generations, and accordingly has become the stuff of barroom legend. I have letters claiming that the number has something to do with a satanic ritual, that it was the age of Christ when he died, even that it signifies the number of glass-lined tanks in the Latrobe plant.
Tres bizarre, but if M. Tito is to be believed, not quite as bizarre as the truth.
--CECIL ADAMS

"The main reason for my observation is the
idiotic idea that you can separate management skills from technical
skills and train and brings up some sort of universal manager that can
manage anything and everything. Currently, we are in the process of
massive replacement of old type of managers - those that led western
technological advance for the past half of the ce...s that are for some time on this track have recognized
that despite huge expenses and very strict process of stuff evaluation
(in many cases intimidation is the right word) are not able to produce
anything useful. And they start the process of outsourcing to the
countries where people still think straight and are not infected with
the virus of universal management."
