My personal preference has always been for abstract examples,
i.e. I prefer the tables being presented as parent/child instead of
DEPT/EMP.

I've always found examples such as the one you mention
quite distracting, since I need to first understand the example
in order to understand the feature being illustrated ... and
what gets memorized is the abstract meaning, not the
reference to the Rabbit Colony, that gets filtered out
from my memory almost immediately.

Still, it's a matter of personal preference of course, you
find them interesting and lively and that's perfectly valid as well ;)
