Some ideas:

- a wrongly typed piece of code: then show him a) how ghc(i) pinpoints
the problem part and is very clear in its demands ("I wanted this, you
gave me this") and b) how malleable the type system is.

- a declarative graph made with diagrams (with a graphical result

- parsec (even if you go with applicative style, the code is very readable)
