Nevermind, I think I found:

You could try the JSON parser exercise. (
https://github.com/revence27/JSON-hs) Or anything else with Parsec, it's a
pretty good power-showing library.

>>  Hello Cafe,
>> I will be (re)presenting Haskell in a "Batlle Language" event Wednesday
>> evening: A fun and interactive contest where various programming language
>> champions try to attract as much followers as possible in 5 minutes.
>> Having successfully experimented the power of live coding in a recent
>> Haskell introduction for the Paris Scala User Group, I would like to do the
>> same but given the time frame I need a simpler example than the music
>> synthesizer program.
>> So I would like to tap in the collective wisdom looking for some concise,
>> eye-opening, mind-shaking and if possible fun example of what one can
>> achieve in Haskell. Things that sprung to my mind are rather dull: prime
>> factors, fibonacci numbers.
>> Thanks in advance,
>> Arnaud
