Screw this lettering

Forums: 

Had this silly pun in my mind when making this image:

Though the effect looks fancy, I would like some suggestions how to make the lettering part more "streamlined".

It was modelled with blender, with a simple screw command, which, can work with continuous lines.
How would you connect letters with horizontal segments?

I wouldn't prefer adding loops personally, so a regular script writing is a no-go.
