I've used Harry Potter references in the past as interesting PubMed search examples.  There are citations that show an increase in headaches in children after the latest book had come out (from reading too long).  There is also a citation about pediatric ER visits going down after the books were released.


Another fun PubMed search is for citations about Agatha Christie.  She trained to become a pharmacy technician so there are some articles that discuss how her training influenced her mystery novels.


Finally, an interesting search from the art world is to look up Vincent Van Gogh and digitalis toxicity.  There is some literature that discusses whether his use of digitalis might have contributed to using the color yellow in many of his paintings.


Regards,
