The tax collector is the pathogen entering the body (house) to steal nutrients (money).
Oh No! The Tax Collector has come for Tax Fraud Johnson's money!
Sweat is a first line of defense because of its high pH level.
Thankfully, Tax Fraud Johnson sweats. A lot.
The pathogen has made it's way past the first line of defense, into the body, through an open wound in the skin (open door to hornet room).
But the Tax Collector wades through and breaks into the secret hornet room!
These hornets represent Leukocytes, the second line of defense. These are non-specific attackers.
Yes, hornet room. But they don't seem to be enough...
The attack dogs represent Lymphocytes. As the pathogen has not made its way into a cell, these would be B Cells, specific killers that produce antibodies (bad dog breath) to kill invaders.
The tax collector seeking attack dogs oughta do it!
Looks like Tax Fraud Johnson did it again. . .
The Lymphocytes will now be better able to recognize this type of pathogen (tax collector) in the future!
